That's not what the Death card means

Uniformity of Purpose, Congruity of Mediocrity

Just some unrelated items.

I've noticed that the girls - not the guys, mind you - all have pictures of themselves and their boyfriends as the wallpaper on their laptops. I have not noticed this among married women, or among boys of whatever marital status. The pictures are often very similar to one another. It's odd.

Fantasy football league started last night. It's already causing me grief. I hate ESPN for being too interfering when I need control, and being too laissez-faire when I need help.

My loans still haven't come in. When I asked the bursar, they said to hit Sallie Mae and then financial aid here at the college. I did those things, but I didn't want to keep bothering the financial aid office - get more flies with honey than with vinegar, etc. I sent them one e-mail the day after I went to their office and asked if there was anything I could do, and they said it was all set, they just had to confirm my loans to the bursar's office. That was the middle of last week. There was no check on Friday. I went again yesterday to financial aid to confirm my status, and they said -- it was all set, they just had to confirm my loans to the bursar's office. (sigh) Apparently you can't get flies with honey, vinegar, or by having your forms filled out at the right time and going in person to make sure the flies are ready for delivery. I hate bureaucracy.

Generally speaking, I hate a lot of things. I don't have cable, I don't have cablemodem, I don't have my loans. I do have some chocolate-peanut-butter wafer things left over from last year, and I expect to be in position to have to eat them within a week or two.

I'm going to go read for Products Liability and then weep in a dark room somewhere. I'd weep in the financial aid office, but I'm not sure it would do any good.
